D’banj, Patoranking set to thrill as Vanguard Personality of the Year Award holds Friday. Celebrities, politicians, business titans, and the crème de la crème of society will congregate on Friday for the 2018 Vanguard Personality of the Year Award ceremony, filling the Eko Hotel and Suites’ Convention Center to full.
Zainab Balogun, a stunning actress and TV host, and Deyemi Okanlawon, a handsome actor best known for playing the lead in Funke Akindele’s hit film “Omo Ghetto: The Saga,” will host the awards event honoring notable Nigerians who have succeeded in their chosen professions.
The two movie stars will create the mood for the evening by telling hilarious jokes and presiding over the events of the day. The crème of society will be there, and Nollywood stars will swarm the event to show their support for one of their own, Pete Edochie, who will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award that evening.
The National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, Paul Obazele, Shirley Igwe, Fidelis Duker, Cossy Ojiakor, Angela Eguavoen, and Nosa Rex are among those who have confirmed their presence. In addition, there are notable actors like Etinosa Idemudia, Uche Elendu, Seyi Hunters, Bose Alao, Amaka Obi, Joke Lawal, and Peju Johnson.
Patoranking, Laolu Gbenjo, Eltee Skhillz, and MC Remote are among the reggae-dancehall artists on the bill to excite visitors tonight.
Laolu Gbenjo and his Band will transport the audience back in time by playing timeless music and providing an unparalleled live band experience.
Eltee Skhillz, a renowned actor Jide Kosoko’s son and the late Henrietta Kosoko, will be making his debut at the awards ceremony. He gained notoriety last year when he released the breakout single “ODG (Odogwu Na The Spender)” off his self-titled debut EP. When it was released, the song became the most Shazamed music in Nigeria and became viral on social media.
Skhillz will do all it takes to perform well tonight on the main stage. The night will be spiced up by MC Remote’s collection of jokes, who entered the profession with his own distinctiveness.
The night’s high point will undoubtedly be Patoranking’s last performance, who is most renowned for timeless songs like “Alubarika” and “Girlie O.” The reggae-dancehall musician will perform live versions of his 2021 chart-topping hit “Celebrate Me” for the crowd. Additionally, he will serenade the guests with “Iya Bisi,” a 2014 tune he collaborated on with Qdot and Kbaj.
The “Night of Entertainment” award event is billed as a once-in-a-lifetime extravaganza with no dull moments.
